World Wide Web | Online flea market for locals at tahoeflea.com

Creators John Walker and Gary Chaney, both members of the West Shore Association, have teamed up to launch the “Tahoe Flea” at tahoeflea.com. Tahoe Flea is a family-friendly, user-friendly, safe on-line flea market. http://www.tahoeflea.com will serve all areas of Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Reno and Carson Valley. This web site is designed to make shopping on-line local, safe, easy and inexpensive. Sellers may list up to 25 items with photos for 14 days for only $5, Walker said. Categories will include household, garage, recreation, furniture, tools, electronics, kids stuff, clothing and collectables.

Following the motto “Locals Selling to Locals,” Tahoe Flea will streamline on-line selling and shopping for all our communities, Chaney added.

Tahoe Flea will be the first in a series of on-line Flea Markets, throughout California, starting up in the next few months. The first will be “SoCalFlea” owned by Jackie Macken of Truckee, followed by Gold Country, River City, Diablo and Wine Country Fleas. All should be operable by Dec. 1, 2008.
